Shell Factory Pet Adoption Day officials hope to send dozens of pets home for holidays

The Shell Factory & Nature Park, and especially Doggy Heaven Dog Park officials, hope to send dozens of pets home for holidays after the second annual Pet Adoption Day on Sunday, Dec. 2.

The event will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Shell Factory Dog Park, known as Doggy Heaven.

Currently, a number of pet rescue organizations, pet-oriented businesses including pet bakeries and suppliers of all types, are scheduled to attend.

“Last year, 12 dogs got adopted through our first event and we're hoping to adopt out 20 this year,” said Shell Factory Marketing Director Rick Tupper. “We are happy to promote this type of free event here at the Shell Factory since the entire property is dog friendly.”

The community embraces that.

“A number of customers have come in because we are so dog friendly,” he said. “We hope Pet Adoption Day will also promote greater usage of our free Dog Park facility as part of our Community Outreach Program. Other groups can contact us about that.”

The Shell Factory Dog Park is home to SunCoast DockDogs and the SW Florida Wiener Dog Club and the Healing Paws-Abilities Agility organization. This event will provide a great opportunity to adopt that special pet or just browse the various vendors. Once at the Dog Park you will see a complete dog agility course and a dog jumping pool.
